BREEDING SEASON EXCLUSIONS.

As of now through the duration of the breeding season all schedule one birds , red status birds and birds of a sensitive nature to this area will be omitted from the blog or reported as undisclosed site due to the widespread persecution of nesting birds by unscrupulous parties including game keepers and egg collectors.
Any of the above species that are obviously on passage through the area will be reported as normal.
This also applies to wildlife such as Roe Deer, Badger and Hares which are badly under threat from poaching and long dogging in the area at present and unfortunately this exclusion of wildlife will have to continue throughout the year.
Just another sign of the times.

Soil Hill as it was.

Soil Hill is now well overgrown making it a worry for Snow Buntings this year with very little acceptable habitat to pull them down. Looking back through old photos this is how it was in its hay day taken at the west summit watch point.

                  Bring back the Bulldozer.

Thats right Dave. Earlier still GD used to put seed down regular and one year we had Lap Bunt, Snow Bunt and Shore Lark all together.
